A Plain Narrative 01 a Memorlable Fight, By a Trooper Of the Fomcus
Seventh. Hand To Hand. It was a Fight To Annllatlon. The
Wonderful Bravery Of the Sioux-
Written Especially for the Herald.
In his tepee on the creek,
Lay old Big Foot, dying, weak.
Big Foot, Indian chief, and brave,
'Backed with pain, and near tbe &rave
Neavthe Happy Hunting Grounds.
Troops and Indians hand to hand,
. Struggled on the prairie sand;
Bhots and curses, moans and yells,
Noises of a thousand bells.
'Through the tepee came the sounds.
Sprang; old Big Foot from his bed.
Then fell over backward, dead;
Pierced through by twenty holes,
(Ourses on as many souls)
Murdered, in a leaden hall.
Crouching at the chieftain's feet,
Was his squaw Wa-la-go-llte,
O'er his body took her stand,
Loaded Winchester in hand;
Then with ballet through her breast,
Went to her eternal rest.
Kose the plaintive death chant wall.
Tales of a Sioux Chief.
' "I look like I had money nor, and
to tell the truth I have. I ain't blow
ing about it, and ain'tashamed to admit
that for ten years I was worse than
lead broke. I didn't have a cent nor a
Head on earth. . The years were be
wean '85 and '95. I've made my little
ile now and I can't count my friends,
ve found that to be the way of the
'When I pot desperate I did what
ts of otder boys bave done, I enlisted
the army, and I served my time, ana
re got an honorable discharge, and
n proud of it. Bat I hated the 6erv-
worse than anything when I found
X I bad to go In it or starve. What
' kes me proud of it? Well, I'll tell
I was in the 7th cavalry in 1890.
. you know now? Well, I'll tell you
ae story.
'I was in the battle of Wounded
Kuee Creek, in the winter of '90, and
' think that's enough for any man to
i proud of . It hasn't bsen a long
tile ago now, and people don't know
ich about It, but it was one of the
rdest battles that was ever fought In
y Indian war In this country. It was
after the death of Sitting Ball, and
the Indians were crazy with fear and
almost demoralized.
"When Sitting Bull was arrested,
and shot when trying to escape, there
were a good many redskins on the
warpatb, but his death frightened
most of them, and there were only
about twelve hundred of them who
took to the Bad Lands and defied the
troops. The rest of them went back
to their reservation. The prospect
was that there would be another long
and bloody war with the Sioux, and
the army was considerably worried.
"Red Cloud was an old man, and he
wanted peace. An officer had been
murdered by some Indians of his band,
and he was afraid there was going to
ba another war. He oame back to the
reservation in the dead of winter, when
the snow was on the ground, to escape
from his own tribe. They were inclin
ed to go on the warpath with those of
Sitting Bull's warriors who had taken
to the Bad Lands when the old chief
died. Red Cloud was almost blind, and
he had to be led the whole distance by
his daughter.
"Sitting Bull's braves had started to
jola the other Indians on the warpath,
but for some reason they came back,
and one morning along in the middle
of December Little Bat.anlndlan scout,
came in with the news that the Sioux
band under Big Foot were only eight
miles away on Porcupine creek, and
that Big Foot wanted to speak with
Captain Whiteside, who was in com
mand of the Seventh cavalry. If he
had gone to the Bad Lands the war
would have lasted maybe for years.
"We started for Porcupine creek,
and the Sioux were drawn up in a line.
There were more than a hundred and
fif ty, and they were heavily amed. It
was on a Sucday morning, I think, and
though it had been pretty cold up to
t bat time, it was clear and warm.
When we got near to the Indians Big
Foot came out alone from his side,
andCaptain Whiteside went out to meet
him. Big Foot offered to surrender.
He had gotten tired, he said, of being
hunted around, and h.9 couldn't fight
with two hundred and fifty equaws
and papaoses.
"As soon as Big Foot surrendered
we cloeed in on the Indians and
marched them to our old camping
grounds on the Wounded Knee creek.
We formed a cordon around them and
sent for reinforcements. We could
see that the Indians were suspicious
and uneasy, but we didn't thick there
was going to be any trouble with
them, as they were worn out and
hungry. They were a pitiable eight.
Their blankets were dirty and full of
holes, their leggings were worn out,
and they had absolutely nothing to
eat. I never did understand how they
had held out so long as they did.
"The next morning Colonel Forsyth
came over and took command of the
troops. Then the order came to disband
Big Foot's warriors. We had a Catling
and a Hotchkiss gun mounted to com
mand the valley where we were camped,
and the boys were dismounted. Big
Foot was lying in bis tent. The Indians
said he had bad medicine and that he
had the whlte.man's disease. I guess
he meant consumption, though I kn w
it was something the matter with his
"The Indians were told to come out
of their tents and we were formed into
a hollow square with the Indians in
the center. Colonel Forsyth ordered
them to go back into their tents and
get their guns. Twenty of them start
ed, and when they came back there
were two guns among them .
"Captain Whiteside was a quick and
Impetuous man, and be didn't like the
way the Indians were doing. He or
dered a squad to search the tepees and
bring out every weapon, and all
the ammunition that was found in
them. The rest of the troop closed up
closer on the Indians.
"The search had hardly begun when
the Indians raised their death chant.
They all of them took it up and it was
the most peculiar sound I had ever
heard. It was almost ghastly and
sounded uncanny and just like some
body was really dead. You could al
most draw a picture of it: The Icdians
kept this up while tbey squatted on
the grass, and then all of a tudden, be
fore an j body knew what was happen
ing it changed to the war song.
"The Indiana were on tbelr feet be
fore we knew anything was.wrocg, and
the next minute they pulled their guns
from under their blankets acd opened
fire at close quarters. Those tbst
didn't have guns rustud us with scalp
ing knives and tomahawks and before
we could realize it the fight was on.
"It is going to be history some day.
A thing like that seems grand and
awful to me. I look back on it now
and I don't blame the Indians. They
thought they were going to be deprived
of their arms and then murdered, and
white men would have thought the
same thing under the same circum
stances, and would have tried to sell
liveB as dearly as the Indians did.
"After the first volley had been
fired the troops recovered from their
surprise, and after that there was the
greatest possible order and discipline
We clubbed our guna and fought with
six shooters. The Indians were com
pletely hemmed In on all sides. It was
the bravest thing I ever saw done in
my life and It deserves to be remec
bered as long as bravery is honored.
"The fact that they were Indians
doesn't make any difference to me. It
was the bravest thing I ever saw done.
There wasn't a ohance for the Indians
from the start. We had about six
hundred men where tbey had only one
hundred and fifty, and besides tbey
were hindered with their squaws and
papooses. They intended to die fight
ing rather than be butohered, and
any brave people in the same position
would have done what they did. We
didn't understand each other. Thai's
"Those Sioux fought like fiends, and
that little handful of them almost cut
their way through and escaped. Some
of them did.
"We were in such close quarters that
it was a hand to hand fight from the
start. Indians and soldiers lay on the
ground looked in each other's arms,
Indian knife against revolver butt, and
that's the way they were found after
the fight.
"There wasn't any mercy shown on
either side. As soon as the Indiana
made the first rush tbe troops met It
with a cheer, and above the noise of
the fight you could hear some cavalry
man jelling aa loud as he could:
"Remember Custer." It was taken up
and we cheered wh'.la we fought. The
men lost all control of themselves. I
can only speak for myself, but I know
that the only thing I wanted was to
kill as many redskins as I could. It
waa tbe excitement of the battle.
"I've beard it said that the cavalry
didn't make any distinction between
the braves and their equaws. It isn't
so. It's a l;e. I doa't believe a single
man knowingly shot a woman. There
